hey , I've been using my i7 930 for about 3 years now. I'm currently OC at 3.6ghz on Stock and hit 67c on Prime95 so I have been able to squeeze some juice out of this thing. I'm wondering wheer I go from here. My CPU is getting hot in the summer and I'm thinking its time for an upgrade. What CPU should I be looking for ? i5 2500k or 3570k? I live in Canada and prefer NCIX. Now upgrading is probably gonna cost 450$ from what I can tell. Is it worth the upgrade or should I get a CPU cooler.
Iin terms of coolers I was thinking the h60 or Hyper 212, if I don't get the desired OC on my current i7 I can always use these o my new Cpu correct?
I have a i920 @ 4ghz and have not had issues with any software or games. So if you have cpu bottle necking issues then an upgrade may be a good idea. But if it just an itch to change take the above advice and wait a bit. Also the 6g of triple channel ram give great bandwidth. It is hard to saturate the ram in that config.
